    It was a wonderful, taking us completely around Scotland. Our guide, Tamara Henry was exceptional, knowledgeable, patient, good sense of humor, and kept a reasonable time table. I would highly recommend this tour

    I am extremely happy with all aspects of Trafalgar's Outlander based tour. There was only one instance at a hotel complex where we had to pay quite a lot for a pizza after trying several resturants in the complex and being told they were catering for other tours. The tour co ordinator and drivers were exemplarary and I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. My room mate was a perfect match which was also an added pleasure. I have no reservations in recommending Trafalgar.

    What an awesome tour of Scotland! It covers a LOT of territory so sometimes it feels a bit rushed to cram it all in, but if you’re ok with that you’ll have a fantastic time!

    Just completed 14 day tour with 42 others on the 'Outlander' tour to the Scottish Highlands. The tour leader Jon Sowden was excellent, competent, knowledgeable and unflappable, the main driver Tommy was likewise, they made a great team. The tour covered a lot of territory, we stayed at old and new hotels, the hotel in Ballachulish was magnificent in character and location. We were blessed by amazing weather but the tour would have been worthwhile even if we had lots of rain as we expected. We enjoyed the whole experience.

    Hi the tour was as expected, and the accomodation good. Some of the Hotels were quaint the best venue was Ballachulish which was a beautiful Hotel with a brilliant outlook. The coach and the driver were good. The tour director was excellent she knew all about Outlander and the different areas where filming was carried out. The tour also had good general balance.
